Electronics Recycling

Safely recycle your old or unwanted electronics to the Data Dump!

Twice a year, SouthTech invites our clients and the general public to bring their old, outdated electronics to be safely recycled at no charge. When we say electronics, we mean things like desk phones, mobile phones, monitors, computers, printers, copiers, and keyboards. We offer this service because we are passionate about keeping our business practices as sustainable as possible.

There is a small list of devices that we cannot accept due to expenses incurred by the recycling process: a good example is old televisions. Old televisions tend to have harmful materials on the inside, and they require special care to dismantle safely. But it’s more than likely that your pile of old office tech is good to go. So bring it to the Data Dump!

When is the next one?

We are co-hosting our next Data Dump with the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce the weekend of Halloween on Friday, October 29th from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. This time we will be parking our tents and trucks in the chamber’s parking lot at 1945 Fruitville Rd, Sarasota, FL 34236. Tell your friends, families, and co-workers to stop by and dump their old devices. We look forward to seeing you there!

How does it work?

It’s easy! The Data Dump works like an assembly line. You pull up in your car, our team helps you unload, and then the disassembly starts. Devices with hard drives are taken apart and the hard drives are punched with an industrial drill press, destroying them so no one can access your data.

You can stick around to watch or record the hard drive destruction, for proof of secure disposal, or if you’re in a hurry you can head out as soon as your car is unloaded. The Data Dump has been talked about on the Suncoast View. You can view the segment here!
